  • Fixed an issue that would cause sound effects to not play properly when the player is in an outdoors area.

Update 1.25 is out now on PS4, Xbox One and PC.

I could finished the article right hear, but I’ve got to mention this, as this was just too amusing not to bring up. As less than a week after Count Dooku was included in Star Wars Battlefront II as one of the heroes players can utilize in battles. Modders found a way to remove both his hands and his head to create his lifeless body in Star Wars Episode III: Revenge of the Sith when he was killed by Anakin Skywalker by order of Palpatine.

I’m not the only one getting a Headless Horseman vibe from this right? Ironically that film Sleepy Hollow did star the late Christopher Lee. Literally appears for about a minute, yet still hold such a strong screen presence. Funny though as you had developers over at DICE putting the effort in creating an accurate face to Christopher Lee and within days there was mod to remove it.

Later this month Jedi Knight Anakin Skywalker will be added to the game as a free DLC, along with an additional appearance/skin. The 501st Legion clone trooper appearances/skins will also be arriving to the game at the same time, in addition to two new game modes: Capture Point and Capital Ship Takedown. No precise date has been announced yet.
